Sonuna 19:15


"Preslav Literary School’s ‘Sonuna’ is sorrowfully symphonic in a way that recalls the recently passed Henryk Gorecki, a grand cathedral of sound and emotion – cold, monumental, stopping in its tracks occasionally to contemplate, before moving onward and deeper. At around 16 minutes, an industrial reverie harmonises with the souls of My Bloody Valentine burning in the grate. The granite edifice could turn out to be made of thick ice, and despite very contrasting modus operandii, there’s a feel to this piece that also nods towards Johann Johannsson. Thomas’ tape loops are souls of undead sounds and the world he creates speaks of a bleak and frozen European city scape, gothic architecture and Cold War austerity." Lee Etherington, NO-FI.

“A pure church organ drone provides the basis for a layering of sounds that include child like voices, bird song and massed choirs. Such is the skill in mixing all this degraded sound that the end result becomes one amorphous globule of ghostly ethereal delight.” Idwal Fisher
